Cover blurb:
No real fan of the smash BBC TV series can miss this fascinating series of interviews, each one profiling the careers of a star from "DOCTOR WHO" and examining their time in the programme.

One of the most popular and capable assistants to have travelled with 'DOCTOR WHO' in the last few years has been TEGAN JOVANKA. In Myth Makers Five NICHOLAS BRIGGS talks to JANET FIELDING the talented actress who brought the character to our screens.

Note:  First of 17 Myth Makers videos released in the US, which confusingly followed a different numbering scheme to the original British releases. To add further confusion, this was a double release, which also incorporated the Michael Wisher interview. Followed by Volume 2: Ian Marter / John Leeson.

Cover blurb:
In this volume of MYTH MAKERS journey through time and space with "Doctor Who" star Janet Fielding. Your host Nicholas Briggs accompanies Janet through her career up to and including the creation of "Doctor Who" character Tegan.

In the second half of this volume meet Michael Wisher, long-time supplier of villianous [sic] voices for many "Doctor Who" foes, including the evil mastermind Davros. Keith Harrison hosts this fun filled and informative interview with one of the Doctor's greatest enemies.

Cover blurb:
JANET FIELDING and NICHOLAS BRIGGS meet at a deserted dockside warehouse near the River Thames.

In the next thirty minutes they will travel in space and time as Janet gives a candid account of a career which led to the part of TEGAN JOVANKA in the BBCtv series DOCTOR WHO.

What was it like working alongside TOM BAKER and PETER DAVISON? Why did she lie to JOHN NATHAN-TURNER?

Why is someone following them?

If anyone can cope with this situation surely Janet and Nick can?

Cover blurb:
"I think that the series doesn't have a life any more... the role models that it presented for young girls were just appalling."

Janet Fielding's portrayal of the loud-mouthed brassy Australian air hostess Tegan Jovanka made her one of the most memorable assistants to have travelled with Doctor Who.

This updated Myth Makers combines an interview by Nicholas Briggs recorded at Janet's home in 1985 with selected highlights from her appearances at conventions over the years.

It gives a unique perspective on how this very forthright actress has developed and changed her views since working on Doctor Who.

Featuring Peter Davison, Sarah Sutton and Mark Strickson, this Myth Makers is as individual as Janet herself.
